NEW DELHI. 78-year-old US President Joe Biden on Friday lost his control and tripped multiple times while climbing up the steps to Air Force One.
Taking the first couple of steps, Biden trips about halfway up the stairs. He manages to recover, then stumbles again and briefly goes down on one knee, video footage shows.
